    Well, I just got my new pair of temminck. And I love them. They are a pretty neat bird. Just need to tame them down a bit now. That runs my total to a even dozen different breeds now.[​IMG]

    Absolutely not Roy. They were flown in from California.

    I have all my pheasants in pairs. And each pair in its own 12x12 pen. I put the doves and Chukar in with the pheasants. And I keep the quail on wire. So nope I don't mix them. They cost to much to replace if they kill each other. So I just play it safe.[​IMG]
